In this really quick video I will show you exactly what the Sony FE 28mm f/2 Lens looks like with both 21mm f/2.8 wide angle and 16mmm f/3.5 Fisheye conversion lenses, while filming in 1080/24p with my full frame Sony A7r.
I went down to the green bridge for this test because it offers a nice perspective view that I thought was perfect for illustrating what these lenses can do in the real world.
Encase you are wondering, you can not record while mounting a conversion lens onto the FE 28mm f/2 lens or when taking one off. The Video will just stop recording. This is due to the software lens profiles needing to be applied and also the electronic connection that transfers the exif data from the given conversion lens. Sony decided to not allow recording although they used to way back in the day.
Auto HDR Sample Photos with Each Lens
Just the 28mm f/2 lens first:
Then with the 21mm wide-angle conversion lens attached.
And then with the 16mm fisheye conversion lens attached.
The sharpness holds up pretty well with the conversion lenses in the real world and for the money I would say these are worth considering based off this initial testing. More detailed testing to come in the full reviews, but for those that just can’t wait I figured this article would be useful 😉
